I’ve been thinking alot lately….everything that has been going on. Politics, California fires and more. I am so disturbed though.
You know, I was on Facebook the other day and I saw a few images of the California fires that are blazing through leaving people homeless, lost and dead. Then I came across people who have posted things about elderly and children with disabilities. Then I came across posts of animals….animals in need of help for various reasons. Some had been burnt by California wildfires, some abused, some homeless.
But what I’m sickened by the most is that the animal posts received more funding than any posts about people….humans with disabilities, those homeless and those who’ve lost their homes or in need of care. What is this? Do people care more about animals than they do of their own kind? I’m just sick over this!
I love animals, don’t get me wrong here, but I’m so saddened by how much humans reach out to save an animal over a human being!
For instance, my brother has been trying to raise money to get his daughter here to America to get here the medical attention she needs. He’s been trying for the last couple years maybe more. Amelija is sick and disabled. Too sick to come here. My brother has been working his ass off here in America and sending money to his wife and daughter in Lithuania for medical treatment. They have been married for years. The story is way more complicated than I can even explain.
Yet, out of all the people in this world who are homeless, starving, in need of medical attention and ill are being bypassed for animals. This is America and this is sad.

I’m not throwing a guilt trip here, but really think about it. Where she is just one little girl in need of help, there is a million more in need of help…who are sick and helpless. I know I can sleep at night helping others everyday, can you sleep at night?
